Uhuru..... Kenyans are dying

07 May 2015, 16:11 William Korir

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement ODM has asked president Uhuru Kenyatta to look hard at the country's security situation in the country in the wake of the Turkana massacres.

The statement comes a few days after over 70 people were killed in inter tribal clashes between the Pokot and Turkana tribes.

The clashes took place in the backdrop of continued reassurances by the government that the security of the nation is in good hands.

ODM chairman John Mbadi said Tuesday that the President must step up and take full control of the situation at the moment.

He stated that the lack of a statement from the president on the attacks have left a bad taste in the minds of Kenyans who are still reeling from the Garissa University College attacks that saw 148 people killed.

" We have a very brief message for the President of the Republic of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy Mr William Ruto. We want to appeal to the President and his deputy to stop dancing on the graves of Kenyans. The president and his deputy must stop mistaking the wailings of mourning Kenyans for songs," he said.

" Mr President, give us back our country. Mr President, our country is shrinking, under your watch. We are losing the 
North Rift to bandits. We have virtually lost what used to be North Eastern Province to terrorists and bandits. From Baringo, to Pokot to Turkana all the way to Tana River, the bandits are in charge," he added.

Mbadi says that the attacks in the northern parts of the country have been handled badly and especially from the manner in which the president and his deputy have taken to address it.

" This week, we lost 54 lives in Turkana-Pokot region. We lost another 13 lives in the Loyangalani area of Marsabit and what do we hear? The President and his deputy are going to the South Rift to diffuse rebellion against the Deputy President and woo people to JAP. The president is retreating to safe zones and mundane partisan political issues while our country shrinks," he accused.

" The President is retreating to State House Nairobi, to State Lodge Sagana and to South Rift where he thinks it is safe. But the country is shrinking and soon, there may be nowhere to retreat.It is unacceptable, inconceivable and unbelievable that neither the President nor the Deputy President has visited Garissa University College, a month after our children were butchered in cold blood there. Garissa University remains closed," he continued.

And then the final call.

"Uhuru and Ruto must give us our country back. We want to see leadership from the front, not retreats and warnings. President Uhuru and his deputy Ruto must head up North, not south, not anywhere else."
